I know, I know, some of you just hate them and have ongoing wars with them but I can't help it, I love them.
First of all, they're just too cute for words. I know that's not very scientific of me but what the heck, they are totally cute.
They are so small they make every predator's favorite food list yet they are quick, agile and sassy. I have seen them talk back to animals twice their size before making a hasty retreat. They don't always escape of course but they do more often than their size may lead you to believe. I love an animal with spunk that isn't arrogant. Let's face it, weasels are little and have lots of spunk but they are also sneaky and arrogant and hard to love with all that bloodthirsty killing they do...I mean, really, not the same at all. And yes, I am anthropomorphizing here but I hope you'll forgive me.
Besides, how could you not love that sweet little alert face?
